Weird Question: Insurance Defense Related. Started at a new firm about a year and a half ago. The partner insists that the paralegal he has bill for discovery. I find this incredibly odd as I’m not “killing it” with billable hours. This seems odd…… do any other insurance defense firms work like this?
I’m interviewing with a startup and the range has a 40k difference from the lowest to highest point. It’s also pre-seed and comes with equity, and health, 401k benefits. It’s a director of sales role so I would eventually be recruiting and managing a team along with building the processes and strategy. What would you consider a fair compensation package? If they offer me something on the lower end of the range, is it still appropriate to counter with an offer that is over their stated range?
How do I launch an insurance agency?
Context: I just started a sales role 3 months ago State Farm. It’s my first time ever doing sales. Huge success so far, (nothing extravagant yet), but it’s only been 3 months. I’m currently selling 50+ policies a month.
I know sales isn’t everything it takes to start an Agency. Where should I try to pursue growth before starting an agency?
Follow Up Question: Is my boss hyping me up or is 50+ policies a month pretty good?

Hi ladies - anybody got tips on staying fit while working ~60 hour weeks? I’ve gained 30 lbs 😢and I think sitting at my computer 10+ hrs a day plus stress eating is a contributor. Don’t want to lose my job but also don’t want to sacrifice my health anymore.
Is it possible to have an off day with billable hours? Corner office is always concerned about our mental health “in these trying times” yet the not-so-subtle “I noticed your hours went down this week” convos undermine that. Even if my hours are down from 2 weeks ago but still over 40 billable.

I have an opportunity to buy a studio in a high rise. This would be a property for me to live in.

She agreed to sell with the issue that there is a tenant in place until November. The difference between my would be mortgage (and fees like estimated insurance and taxes) and the rent the tenant pays is $200 a month. Cont.

I’m a CPA in the US with public (big 4 financial services) and industry experience (tech). I’m looking to re-locate to the UK. I’m struggling getting any traction with recruiters or job interviews. I’ve applied at all the big 4 (EY, PwC, KPMG, Deloitte) and many other companies. I’ve also connected with dozens of people on LinkedIn and still have been unsuccessful. Any help or tips would be appreciated.

Does anyone have good advice/resources for pivoting their accounting experience into something less accounting-focused? I've done B4 (audit) and consulting (accounting advisory), and while the advisory side was better I still feel mentally drained and isolated (ie, I spend 80% of my day in excel). Idk how to get this career more people-focused.
We have one person on our team who prioritizes work/life balance - and there’s nothing wrong with that, except when they start at 9am and sign off at 4.30pm every day without regard for open tasks, it means the rest of us have to pick it up and work even longer hours so we have no chance of balance. Does anyone have suggestions on what they would do in this situation?
